Airport to ‘Fly Out’ of Eilat
A measure to remove Eilat’s airport from the middle of town to north of the city will be submitted to the Cabinet next Sunday.
The international airport was built years ago before Eilat has flourished into a universal tourist attraction. The once-quaint appearance of planes occasionally flying low overhead next to tourist stops has become a headache and earache where hotels and malls are nearby.
